OmniLight Invovations 365

Entrance to the site of the radiant symbol (Jothi or orb of light) of OmniLight in the Sathiya Gnana Sabhai (1872), or Hall Of Truth-Knowledge, designed by Ramalingam.

Arutperunjothi Agaval: Couplet: 650

பார்பத மனைத்தும் பகரடி முழுவதுஞ்

சார்புற நடத்துஞ் சரவொளி மணியே!

Which

Governs

And

Supports

Terrestrial

And

Sub-Terrestrial

Sites,

OmniLight Of Supreme Compassion!

Notes:

This couplet continues the series of couplets on மணி (Gemstone), மந்திரம் (Mantra), and மருந்து (Medicine). The OmniLight and its revelatory and other powers are described in terms of these three central metaphors of precious gemstone, mantra, and medicine.

The Arutperunjothi Agaval is Ramalingam’s magnum opus of spiritual enlightenment poetry composed in 798 couplets in 1872. In later posts, I will offer commentaries on these couplets.
